Oughterard lies close to the western shore of Lough Corrib in Co. Galway. On this chart, the town is shown on the bottom left. It is the chief angling centre on the lough.
Lough Corrib is a lake in the west of Ireland. The River Corrib connects the lake to the sea at Galway. It is the second largest lough in the island of Ireland (after Lough Neagh). It lies mostly in County Galway with a small area of its northeast corner in County Mayo. This chart covers most of the lake, the western and southern extremities are not shown.
The lake is of international importance as a marine archaeological site. While Lough Corrib is reputed to have 365 islands, a recent more accurate figure is 1327. The most famous of the islands is Inchagoil Island, midway between Cong and Oughterard. It is one of the largest of the many wooded islands along Lough Corrib. The multitude of small islands make this chart very detailed in 3D work and it is a very attractive chart as a result.
The chart used is a black and white classic from the Admiralty archives. It is set on a black background and is finished with a charcoal mount and black frame.
